Puerto Rico Freefall Festival 2009

Recommended Posts

In November I flew direct with American Airlines from SJU to Ohare (is that how you spell it...??)

The island has suffered a major setback in 08' with a reduction in flights in general... and now the flights remaining get full fast and therefore more expensive.. so get your tickets or start swimming over...
the boogie is going to be awesome!:ph34r:

btw if anyone is a student or a faculty member at a college/university there might be some kick ass student discounted deals on flights to PR on studentuniverse.com
I haven't checked other locations but from DC I found a direct flight to SJU at pretty much half the price I was finding on any other search engine... it was cheaper than flying to florida

Scotty shouldn't take the blame for the second video. That messy editing was my doing.

Bottom line: if you fly teh squirrel suit thingy, go to Puerto Rico.

In addition to what I'm sure will be some amazing flocking organized by Bland and Shorb, you will have an opportunity to...

Discover new rums: http://s80.photobucket.com/albums/j164/Huxley71/?action=view¤t=panaramaofrumparty.flv

Make an impression on local government officials: http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j164/Huxley71/transportedbythecops.jpg

Discover new forms of transportation: http://s80.photobucket.com/albums/j164/Huxley71/?action=view¤t=onlyinpuertorico.flv

Watch a few epic sunrises (if you're not too hungover from aforementioned booze): http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j164/Huxley71/Sunrise-1.jpg

Learn what makes Tonysuits so popular with the ladies: http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j164/Huxley71/JordanSamanthaCheetahTony.jpg

Discover the local fauna: http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j164/Huxley71/Picture13-3.png

See how you size up with the competition: http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j164/Huxley71/Hunglike.jpg

They got kicked off of the Puritanical photobucket hosting site...

(That behavior met with my approval, by the way.)

Seriously, folks, this is the event to come to...

Even for you Europeans - last I checked it's winter in February in all of the Northern Hemisphere. You simply can't beat the weather, beaches, rum, scantily clad women, rum, scantily clad women and rum that this event offers.

Did I mention the rum?

Yes, you have to fly to a US territory, which probably requires a tissue sample for Homeland Security, but it's a small price to pay...

I'm sure there are scantily clad men, too, I just didn't notice any. :P

I hope you can make it - it's a fun time.

(I am hoping for a kickback from the Puerto Rico tourism authority... ) ;)

That setup uses a C02 cartridge, right? How/where do you get that on Puerto Rico? My limited knowledge of this stuff was that TSA doesn't allow you to travel by air with C02 cartridges, even if they are in checked baggage. That's why I was wondering if Scott's flotation device was a self-inflated one...

One high altitude load will go every morning. Wheels up at 7 am on the weekends and 8 am on weekdays. They go to 21K and it costs $60. Anyone interested in getting a bunch of wingsuits on one of those loads? How about Friday morning?

Awesome ! Anyone interested in the high altitude wingsuit jump on the morning of Friday (the 13th) will need to email Viviana and let her know that you want to reserve a slot on that load.

I have already reserved my spot.

Her email address is: boogie@xtremedivers.com

You remember the scene in Total Recall when Schwarzenegger's space suit breaks and he's exposed to the low pressure conditions of Mars (eyes bulging out, etc.)?

It's just like that.

Does anyone know what the oxygen situation is? Having never done a high altitude jump I'm concerned about how my body may react ...



Much like the airlines...there regrettably has been some cutbacks. We will no longer be serving oxygen on the flight.

You, however, are welcome to bring your own o2 from home. I recommend an ample supply of ziplock bags...but remember, only fill them half way up or they will pop!:D
